Created in 1997 by Barbara Kramer and Ed Mandelbaum, D&S is an independent fashion and lifestyle trade show that is international and alternative.
In Paris the event will be held at the Galerie Nikki Marquardt, situated in the Marais district in the historic Place des Vosges. The Parisian event will present a selection from D&A with snippets from around thirty American brands. This offering will be complemented by a range of other international labels over the course of subsequent editions.
“The Designers & Agents in Paris will be a presentation of our point of view of those that we think are the best current designers,” explained Barbara Kramer. “We have a real contribution to bring to the Parisian fashion scene.”
The part of the selection criteria that is having more and more emphasis placed upon it by D&A is that of the environmental ethic with which brands work, particularly as regards sustainability.
Designers & Agents is the only trade show to be affiliated with the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA).
